Tony Perkins, a Washington D.C. local hero and community icon is the co-anchor of FOX 5 News at 5pm & 10pm.
From 1999 to 2005, Tony was the weather forecaster and feature reporter for ABC's "Good Morning America", helping to take that show to within breathing distance of NBC's "Today" show in the heated network morning show wars. While he was with "Good Morning America", Tony contributed music, entertainment, and other features and segments to the show. He covered a wide range of events and locations in his years on the broadcast. He also frequently reported on location from weather disasters—often while they were occurring—including nearly twenty hurricanes. His work led to appearances and reports on Fox News Channel and CNN.
Tony's work on "Good Morning America"--and, in particular, his sense of humor (he used to be a stand-up comic)--brought him to other projects.
Tony Perkins first worked at WTTG-TV as co-anchor of "Fox Morning News" from 1998 to 1999, conducting interviews, doing feature segments and reviewing movies. Before that, he served as the show's weather personality starting in 1993, and his warm and often humorous presentation made him one of the most popular TV personalities in the nation's capitol.
Tony grew up in the Washington area, attending Mt. Vernon High School in Fairfax County, and the American University in Washington, D.C. He lives here with his wife and son.
